Re: Matching Funds for West Side War and Pool

The oil down turn is independent of the virus. And honestly, while an epidemic certainly is not what I had in mind, the lack of developing more economically in Wyoming is just going to hurt even more as time goes on. Relying on the old "Boom & Bust" thing needs to be left behind. And already, coal ...

Well they got theirs. $300+ million to build and we can't even get $75 million to update our dilapidated pool and West side stands and press area. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/growth-development/story/2020-03-24/sdsu-mission-valley-stadium%3f_amp=true You do re...

University of Wyoming moves to online instruction beginning March 30 for remainder of spring semester at a minimum. Students asked to vacate residence halls. Won’t be any University events (including practice) until May at the earliest. At this time, graduation ceremonies have not been cancelled; bu...

NBA suspended the season. Have a feeling the NCAA wrestling tournament gets cancelled.
Still going to happen, but with no fans is what I heard. I guess they could still cancel it, too
Officially cancelled. Bummer for the wrestlers. Literally no sports to watch on TV.

Spring Break at the University will be extended for an additional week starting tomorrow and ending March 29. No decisions after March 29 have been made yet as to whether classes will be taught online or in person.

Re: Spring Football - Unlikely

I think what some people are missing (as some pointed out), it isn't just about the mortality rate. If we don't try to control the spread, hospitals and medical personnel will be overwhelmed. Italy is a mess right now. It seems nuts to basically shut down our economy, but I support some of these dra...

Ugh. I get we need to listen to the scientists who know what's up, but has there been a case yet diagnosed in Wyoming yet?
Yes. As stated in Sheridan. Denver is now considered a domestic ‘hot spot’ for Covid. Tip of the iceberg unfortunately.

Re: NCAA Wrestling Brackets

Thought Andrews would get better than #13 seed. Guess he didn't have much of a resume outside of the Big XII championships I thought he was seeded appropriately. HWT wasn’t exactly great in the Big 12 but they have 3-4 guys who could get hot and be an AA. My pick to get hot is Hokit. The Big 10, ho...

Re: NCAA Wrestling Brackets

Bridges with a great draw! Shockingly he gets the #8 seed and should face Gonser (#9 seed) and then if he wins that match, it would set up a match with the #1 seeded Rivera in the quarters. I believe Rivera is about the 5th best wrestler at 133. He got the #1 seed because he happened to upset DeSan...

Re: Matching Funds for West Side War and Pool

In the short term, the state is in a lot more trouble than it had forecast. Every $1 drop in in oil prices is roughly a loss of $70 million in tax and royalty revenues to the State. That said - low oil prices could be a help in the long run for coal and natural gas revenues to the State. Low oil pri...
